Rise Up, O Judge traces the roots of the biblical concept of social and liberating justice to the Mesopotamian culture and analyzes the development of justice through its different stages and within various environments and communities of the Old and New Testament. Enrique Nardoni reads the ancient and biblical texts in their own historical, social, and intellectual context but he also relates them to contemporary culture, where his readers are participants, not mere spectators. This study will serve as a resource for teaching and discussing the issue of social justice in universities, seminaries, and religious communities.
Enrique Nardoni (1924-2002) received an MA in theology from the Catholic University of Buenos Aires and an MA and PhD in biblical studies from the Pontifical Biblical Institute (Rome). He was professor emeritus at the University of Dallas (Irving), where he taught biblical studies for over two decades. He published extensively in Spanish, and his English publications (in Studia Canonica, New Testament Studies, Catholic Biblical Quarterly, Theological Studies, and Second Century) focus on charisma and community structure in early Christianity.
